Seen above is the upper humerus of an iguanodontid dinosaur. Clearly visible are two tooth gouges several centimeters long each and a little under a centimeter deep. Whatever bit this animal was strong enough to partially break through bone,, though there is no real crushing evident (aside from that produced by geologic forces). This bone is from an adult animal.

The most likely culprit for the bite marks is Neovenator. A few other predators inhabited the area of the Isle of Wight at the time, though Neovenator is the best match. Baryonyx was also present, its tooth shape (conical) would more likely leave puncture-type injuries as opposed to slashing ones. Eotyrannus could have left gouges like those seen above, but was not big enough to want to take on a full grown iguanodontid., though it would have been willing to scavenge a carcass. All of the other reliably documented predators were far to small to consider an adult iguanodontid prey.

Neovenator, on the other hand, was large enough to tackle a large ornithopod. Fossil evidence indicates a rough lifestyle for this predator, meaning it was not shy about going after larger prey. The location of the injury indicates predation as the most likely cause, as this area was very close to the neck, an area predators like to target.
